Re: Model 1900 Forend Missing

The firing pins measure 1.020 center to center. I have a 1894 16ga and a 1900 16ga there in the back of safe sometime I will get them out and measure them. I have away by looking at the gun I can till if it is a small frame without measuring the receiver.

Re: Thinking of buying this one

Looks like a grade 2 the only thing is the butt plate (pad) is not original. If you want original factory don't buy it.

Re: Want to redo my stock on my model 14, need advice

I would not refinish the stock. first you said it 100 yrs old don 't take its character away try old English furniture polish oil . and never sand the wood it will not match up with receiver.

Re: 1889 Restoration

If you find a Model 1889 with 28 inch barrels check them close to make sure they are not cut off and factory original. Unless that does not matter to you.

Re: Clymer 16 gauge 2 3/4" reamer (finish).

Why not use the correct length shells and leave the chamber alone. I know of a Remington Model 1894 10ga. Damascus 2 7/8 the chambers were ream for 3 1/2 inch shells the gun was sent to London proof house the barrels held the receiver cracked.

Re: Remngton RH38 and RH40 fix blades

What much does a nice RH 30 go for and how hard are they to find?
Also there is a book on Identification Guide to Remington Sheath Knives
I would like to buy.

Re: Are Model 1882/83 and 1889 Parts Interchangeable

With the parts you say are missing how do you know it is a Model 1883?
The 1882 and 83 parts are the same except for the hammers. 1889 hammers
will not work.
